Idaho Falls Idaho Temple Rededicated Today

Hello, all! As most of you are probably aware, today was the day that the Idaho Falls Idaho Temple was rededicated. As previously noted, President Henry B. Eyring presided at the dedicatory services today, accompanied by Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Elder Richard J. Maynes of the Presidency of the Seventy (in what will probably be one of his last assignments as a member of that Presidency, as he will be released on August 1 and reassigned elsewhere at Church headquarters), Bishop Dean M. Davies, First Counselor in the Presiding Bishopric, and Elders Wilford W. Andersen (who serves as one of a few Assistant Executive Directors of the Temple Department, and who also has a role in supervising the Idaho Area), Bradley D. Foster, who serves as Executive Director of the Family History Department (and likely also serves as a member of the Temple and Family History Executive Council), and Elder K. Brett Nattress, who was born in Pocatello, which is part of the Idaho Falls Idaho Temple District. By all reports, it was a most wonderful event, and now that temple is officially in operation again.

Click here for the report on Mormon Newsroom about this event and here for the report of the cultural celebration as found in the Church News and Events section on the Church's official website. As soon as any other news articles about this event are published, I will try to sift through them and find others to include here.

In the meantime, this temple will be open on its usual schedule starting this week. It will be about two months before the next major temple-related event (which will, unless any groundbreakings take place between now and then, will be the dedication of the Tucson Arizona Temple, slated for August 13).

As always, I am doing my level best to keep my eyes and ears open for any and all temple-related news and developments, and I will be sure to post any updates ASAP after I learn of them. Thanks to you all for your readership and support.
